    Who do people think is the better pick from Simonnson or Opacic. Obviously Simonnson saves me some money but I’m worried about the security. I’m trying to get it right first time so I don’t have to waste a trade later on.

    Opacic has won his spot on form, so he’s lower risk. Unless he kills it, Simonsson is probably only there until R3-5 when Oldfield returns. So he’s higher risk, higher reward.

    Just considering last minute changes to my team. I’ve currently got Twal in FRF but am considering downgrading to Napa ($117k cheaper) to either use elsewhere or possibly to keep for a rainy day. Thoughts?

    Like I said, no use having Twal if you’re not playing him. 400k just sitting on the bench. Napa on the other hand is good back up, will make money and u can either play him or not.

    Who will get more mins. Capewell or batemen? Tossing up between the two..

    TU: capewell
    TD: batemen

    I’ve got both in my team but if I had to choose I’d take Capewell due to the possibility that Bateman gets reduced minutes due to the possibility he gets eased in (no trials because of injury)

    Would really love some other opinions or just an easy thumbs up/ down as I’m going around in circles and I’m about to have my first schooner and No good decisions will be made for the rest of the day I’d say …

    No love for Keighran against dogs at home with GK duties (I’m assuming)?

    Not after today’s events. Could be a really difficult game.

    Why would it be difficult? They’re professional footballers. Bad things happen all the time.

    If the warriors game was to be cancelled the SC implications are pretty significant. I’m presuming they would split the competition points and all players would score 0 SC points. I have 3 players playing in the match. Not sure if I should completely change up my team or not. Need to do so before today’s game if I do. Anyone got any idea on the likelihood of the match being cancelled?

    It’s not likely it’ll be cancelled, but I certainly wouldn’t rule out the possibility, given that the Police have said they can’t assume it’s just isolated to Christchurch.

    Auckland has the largest Muslim population in NZ.

    I agree with Flock. I think the game will go ahead. That said, I’ve moved players from that match outside my 17

    I’m a New Zealander and absolutely appaled by what’s happened, but if you want a gauge the best bet is the Chiefs vs Hurricanes Super Rugby game which is 7:30pm NZ time in Hamilton which is a bit over 100km from Auckland so if that hasn’t been called off then they probably will play I’d imagine.

    Looks like I’ll be tuning into my first game of rugby for 10 years.

    I think just sit out any Warriors or Dogs players and sub them for anyone playing (as if they were injured). They’ll be back next week.

    It definitely won’t be cancelled. The attack occurred in Christchurch and the game is in Auckland. Events are never cancelled after attacks like this because it goes against the whole “we won’t let them win; go about your lives” idea.

    Last ctw spot:

    TU: Hymel Hunt playing outside Ponga and averaged 42 in 80min games last year (priced at 32avg)
    TD: Braidon Burns playing for rabbits left edge, has good base stats but only played a few games at centre

    I like Hunt but someone has mentioned Moga is close to a return.
